The Lyrics

On a dark starry midnight, my hubby sleeping in bed
I crawled out of the flannels with a thought in my head
I was not very tired, I couldn't get any sleep
my thoughts got heavy and my brain got dim, I was in something deep

I walked there in the darkness, almost stumbled on my bass
I had web page on my mind, a special kind of a place
So I'd boot up my laptop, logged in, went to Net
There were signs at the portal and I thought see it read:

Welcome to writing in Wikipedia
Such a weirdo place (such a weirdo place), such a geeky page
There's a plenty of stuff that's written in Wikipedia
Full of trivia, you can find it there

Albert's king of the Belgium, Lima town in Peru
all that marvelous knowledge, which you wish that you'd knew
Writing stuff of the music, Linux and chemistry -
I entered in and and soon I was in quite a typing spree

So I wrote another item, saved it and I thought:
"Another piece of knowledge someone may perhaps sought"
When I then clicked the "reload", most my edits had gone
I was upset and so angry as I didn't know what was done -

Welcome to writing in Wikipedia
Such a weirdo place (such a weirdo place), such a geeky page
There's a plenty of stuff that's written in Wikipedia
But a nasty twist - some things get you pissed

Vandals on the rampant, POVs, content wars -
Weasel words and contents that might be little coarse
In the discussion pages, they're on each others' throats
delete stuff that won't fit their bill - oh, that's how it goes...

Last thing I remember I was ripping the cord -
I was angry as a nest of wasps, as my article, it was no more
"Relax", said my husband, "and go back in the bed
You need some sleep now as you're now so up-fed"...

Good story and good Wikipedia spoof. The "which you wish that you'd knew" line was a bit awkward; but, all-in-all, a fine parody. Just be careful and don't damage your bass.

Susanna Viljanen is a Finnish writer of song parodies, sometimes specializing in text of a historial nature, frequently receiving five-ratings for them. Oops, that wasn't objective enough, was it. I don't care: I slab you with some steely fives, 'cause you sure did kill the beast.
